Golden State Warriors reportedly waive two-way player Chris Boucher

UPDATE 3:07 PM: The Warriors have confirmed the release.

According to a report from Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports, the Golden State Warriors have waived two-way forward Chris Boucher. Boucher originally signed the two-way contract with the Warriors after the 2017 NBA Draft, and he will now become an unrestricted free agent.

The 6-foot-11 Boucher played in 20 games for the Santa Cruz Warriors this past season, shooting 46.9 percent from the field, and averaged 7.5 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 11.8 points per game. He only started playing in mid-January due to an ACL injury suffered during his senior year at Oregon.

Boucher, 25, only played one game for the big club this past season. Quinn Cook– who signed to a two-way contract in October to provide depth behind Stephen Curry and Shaun Livingston — was signed to a two-year NBA deal in April, and made the playoff roster.

“We got Quinn Cook last year on a two-way and converted him to a minimum player, so that actually adds a potential 16th, 17th roster spot,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said after the 2018 NBA Draft.

With Cook now a full-fledged member of the roster, and former Oregon standout Boucher gone, Golden State now has two slots for two-way players.

“We’re still learning about the position, what’s the best way to utilize it,” Myers said. “I think we learned, for our team, we might need more guys that can step in and less development, but that’s what we kind of have to figure out.”
